2018 Hyundai Accent

At Mississauga Hyundai, we have a wide variety of Hyundai Accent models for you to see in person.

Captivating Design

Hyundai went all-out in making the 2018 Hyundai Accent look better than ever. On the exterior, the cascading grille layout, combined with a dramatic front end, making a bold statement. Sculpted lines on the hood, plus revised headlight shapes add to the athletic qualities of this sub-compact car.

Speaking of the headlights, new for 2018 are available LED projection headlights. They work with LED daytime running lights, making it easier for you to see and be seen by other drivers. Front fog lights are also optional, which are excellent for navigating through the brutal conditions of Canadian winters.

Another clever design for the Hyundai Accent is available power-adjustable and heated side mirrors. You can also add LED integrated side repeaters, so other drivers are more likely to notice when you’re about to turn.

Also impacted by the redesign is the cabin for the Hyundai Accent. It features 616 litres of cargo space, more than any other vehicle in its class. The 60/40 split for the rear seats means you can carry a combination of large cargo items and passengers, making the car that much more flexible.

To help with the cold of winter, you can choose to add heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Single-zone automatic climate control, another available feature, works great for year-round comfort.

Efficient Performance

Just because you want a car that doesn’t compromise fuel doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice all the fun. You get to enjoy efficient performance with the 2018 Hyundai Accent.

At the center of this balance is the 1.6-litre Gasoline Direct Injection engine. It generates 130 horsepower and 119 lb.-ft. of torque, so you never struggle to get up to a desired speed. Paired to this engine is either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Both shift through the gears smoothly, keeping the engine running as efficiently as possible.

The efficient design doesn’t stop there. Hyundai uses aerodynamic air vents on each side of the lower portion of the front bumper. This cuts down on air twisting around the front wheels, reducing air resistance.

Useful Technologies

As a modern car, the 2018 Hyundai Accent comes with an amazing array of standard and available technologies. For example, autonomous emergency braking uses radar to detect vehicles ahead. When a collision is imminent, and you don’t respond to warnings, the system can fully brake the car to avoid a crash.

Backing out of any spot comes with some risk. The standard rearview camera helps tremendously with avoiding accidents. Full-colour video displays on the 5-inch infotainment screen, helping you to see just about anything in the car’s pathway.

Hyundai offers an upgraded infotainment system. It features a 7-inch touchscreen, plus Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. That means connecting your smartphone to the system is easier and more convenient.
